4x3 Center Cut Safe zone
on Oct 26, 2012 at 7:38:58 pm

Hi All,

I am creating a station ID template in 16x9 HD to be used by our other cable systems. We now have to ensure that any graphics are within 4 x 3 centre cut safe zones. Under view/overlays I can call up Safe Zone, but that appears to be the Action/Title safe zones for a 16 x 9 picture. Is there a way to see what would be title safe using 4 x 3 centre cut while working in 16x9?

I noticed in preferences under canvas you can adjust safe title as a percentage of the canvas. Does anyone know what I could set that at to see if I am within 4x3 Centre cut?

Any help appreciated.

Dave Simpson

Dave,
Copy this image and it will give you a 4X3 Center Cut Safe zone: http://images.creativecow.net/54394/image002.gif

Red is title safe.

Hope this helps and best of luck.

We just used an image similar to Stephens to set up guides and save that as a template project.

Seems to work ok.
